Codicology and Palaeography in the Digital Age, vol. 2
Digital technology changes the way scholars work with manuscripts.
This volume deepens the questions raised by the first volume on palaeography and codicology in the digital age, published a year ago, particularly questions on digitisation and cataloguing, on character recognition and the analysis of script.Moreover, the focus has been widened to include the fields of computer-aided manuscript research in musicology and history of art, as well as to methodologies applied in computational and natural sciences.
Besides Latin, this volume covers also Greek, Glagolitic, Judeo-Arabic and other scripts. The spatio-temporal frame stretches from ancient Egypt of 1800 BC to Paris of the 20th century.
